From fossil to the future — with bioeconomy and biotechnology
Hybrid Congress on March 7 – 8, 2023On March 7 and 8, 2023, the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology UMSICHT, CLIB — Cluster Industrial Biotechnology — and 3N Kompetenzzentrum e.V. will organize the congress “BIO-raffiniert XII” in Oberhausen with the topic “From fossil to the future — with bioeconomy and biotechnology”. The twelfth event in the congress series thus spans the arc from today’s predominantly fossil-based raw material supply to biobased concepts of the future.
Today, the process industry is still predominantly dependent on fossil raw materials. A shift toward regenerative resources, especially renewable raw materials, is underway. In addition, circular economy, recycling and resilience play an important role in existing and new value chains. The congress “BIO-refined XII” addresses these topics and focuses on innovative technologies, sustainability strategies as well as logistics and supply chains. The thematic focal points are: Bioeconomy — Strategy and Implementation, Transformation Pathways and New Value Chains. Both regional and international developments will be addressed.
Interested experts are invited to present their innovations, concepts or industrial practice solutions around the bioeconomy transformation in short presentations in English (10 min presentation).
The deadline for proposals in the form of a one-page abstract is: Tuesday, September 16, 2022.
